    Questions - Contractubex Gel

    Contractubex is recommended to be taken during pregnancy only under medical supervision.

It is used to treat and prevent scars, fissures, superficial thrombophlebitis, burn wound healing, wounds, and abrasions.
    A study published in 1986 in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology indicated that heparin therapy is safe for the fetus and mothers because it does not cross the placental barrier.

Another study published in 2010 in the Journal of Cochrane Database System Review reported higher thromboembolic complications in pregnancy due to procoagulant changes.
